Tonight's special guest is Tambry Harris from Charlotte, North Carolina, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and domestic violence. The author of 'Awakening the Light: A Survivors to Thrivers Going-Forward Story', her goals included guiding survivors of abuse and trauma to find strength and freedom by examining limiting beliefs and claiming a Going-Forward Story that leads to a whole-hearted, meaningful life. “I was a woman wrapped in the image of having it all together," she says, "with a successful career, beautiful daughter, and seemingly happy marriage. Then a sudden panic attack became my wake-up call that my life was not 'perfect.' Years of peeling back the painful layers revealed what I had suppressed for decades - I was a victim of childhood sexual abuse." She goes on, "My family allowed my abuser ample access starting when I was five years old. The sense of not being seen during these violations led to a deep sense of unworthiness. Years were spent understanding and accepting the impact this abuse had on my life choices and my beliefs about myself, including marrying two abusers." Tambry’s twenty years of coaching and eight years of spiritual direction translate into her work with the Going Forward: Survivors to Thrivers (GFS2T) organization. She believes as we make our wounds visible and available, they can be of service to the healing of others. Her story of wounding, struggle, and healing encourages survivors to understand their limiting beliefs, examine unhealthy patterns, and claim their going-forward stories.
